tonight on "the kudlow report" at 7:00. on the budget report and deficit, he said sequestration, budget cuts are the base line, there will be no tax increases. if there's a deal to be made to loosen up the sequester, there have to be other budget cuts substituted for that, perhaps some entitlements but nothing else. taxes are off the board no matter what you may hear. i think we have -- >> i would like to think we can come up with better, smarter ways of cutting spending that also are good for the economy. it would show the credit and bond markets and the world that america is getting ahead of its problems. we want to have an agreement to foster these things, common ground on spending cuts, entitlement reforms and focus on pro-growth policy. >> i mean, he loves to have some pro-growth tax reform in there, simon, but in my discussion with him on stage and off stage, he felt the odds of that are very, very low. the debates will be what kind of spends cuts, whether the sequester line will be used or whether they'll loosen up the sequester and have additional cuts, maybe tiny entitlements b
